History Education

Learning in action
Our students learn both in and out of the classroom. A variety of internships, conference opportunities, local museum work, and oral history projects will allow you to work in the community as you build a portfolio of life-long skills. History courses will prepare you to write well, conduct sophisticated research, and synthesize information into coherent oral and written arguments. Education coursework and clinical experiences will prepare you to become a highly-qualified teacher as well as a reflective decision maker.
